    I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are worse jobs out there.. if you look hard enough. The pay is slightly above minimum wage, im really trying to think positive here

    Cons

    Group Managers at jeld-wen uk get away with doing next to nothing. Some have got into Group manager positions simply for being pals with the C.O's . No Bonus's or Pay rises in years. No possibility of self-improvement within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of the sand, and start taking responsibility! Also you have skilled workers in unskilled jobs on unskilled pay rates! Utilize us!
